PM 511 Measuring Project Performance for Success

Ensuring project health is a vital concern for all project managers. This certification course focuses on the underlying business goals that drive the need for projects. The course is designed to help project managers develop and implement a set of performance measures that evaluate and facilitate achievement of goals for the project and the business. Students will learn beyond the triple constraint project performance measures (time, budget, and quality) with a larger set of project measures specific to customer needs that together can define a successful project. Through this process of measuring performance, students learn how to determine and integrate appropriate performance targets, measures and metrics, and then detail the means to collect baseline and actual performance data necessary to measure, analyze, trend and report findings and recommendations to project stakeholders.
